The NFA released a communiqué indicating that bidding for the right to host the 16th edition of the popular Easter weekend youth tournament will commence on Tuesday, 27 August.

NFA Secretary General Barry Rukoro has appealed on regional and local councils to seriously consider hos-ting the Cup. Rukoro called upon all regions, especially those that have not hosted it before to link up with their respective municipal areas and see to it that they submit a bid. The deadline for regions to submit candidatures and documents is 30 September 2013. The final decision of NFA and The Namibian for the host of the 2014 edition will be made public on 29 October 2013.


The Namibian News-paper Cup is considered as the breeding ground for the upcoming talent as many players from the 13 regions went on to be-come household names in the local Premier League and making it to other leagues outside the country. According to Rukoro the cup is fundamental for the development of players and it has grown in leaps and bounds.

The criteria to hosting the 16th edition of the Namibia Newspaper Cup stipulates that towns that want to be considered to host the competiton must have a stadium with artificial or natural grass, have a minimum capacity for 2 000 people and suitable lighting for night games as well as a PA system. Medical standby for the duration of the tournament, catering and security are also amongst the conditions for hosting the Namibia newspaper Cup.

The NFA and the Namibia Newspaper retain the commercial rights to the competition and there should also be acceptable accommodation for a 25-man delegation from each region as well as for match officials, NFA and Namibian Newspaper officials. The previous cup competition was hosted in Otjiwarongo and was won by the host region Otjozondjupa.
